There is something about St. Patrick’s Day races that makes people think, “I will run in jorts.” In the past, this happened. And then, over the weekend in Pensacola, FL, there was this:

Because there IS evidence of the real running power of denim. And more here for those of you that still aren’t convinced.

Despite my rockin’ cyber searching skilz, I was only able to find a few pictures from the event. Fortunately, they are FABULOUS pictures:
Race Directors! It is TIME for a denim-only run. Contact me. I have a bazillion brilliant ideas swimming around in my head.

Get your denim. Get your scissors. Cut your denim. Wear your denim. Run in your denim. #JortsMile2014
Can I say again how much I LOVE the guys and gals over at Wingate University? The second annual Jorts Mile was yesterday and here are some teaser photos to keep you entertained until I can get my hands on more.
The SIGN! The sign is made out of pairs of jeans!
The TROPHIES! The trophies for the winners!
So magnificent! Wanna bet that the smile on my face is bigger than yours?
If you missed the ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC photos from last year’s race, check them out here.

There are three upcoming races that you MUST know about:
- My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE group of denim runners are again heading to the Kelly St. Patrick’s Shamrock 5K this year with the team name of “Suns Out Jorts Out.” If you are in the Baltimore area on March 16th, head to the race, look for the group of people wearing jorts with smiles on their faces and beer in their hands.
- My new friends over at Wingate University are doing it again! The 2014 Wingate Jorts Mile will be held on the Wingate campus (North Carolina) on April 24th. The pictures from last year’s inaugural race were AMAZING and even led to my How to Guide for Running a Denim-Themed Race.
- And, finally, Trish (@runfreetrl) shared with me a race going on in her town of Canton, MI on June 14th, the Canton Liberty Run. The theme this year is “Stars, Stripes, and Jorts.” Here is the good part:
The “+ More” = My Absence
What’s up, Friends? I am sorry that I have been slacking in my posts. I have a good excuse though: I quit a job that was sucking the life out of me. An entire department of smart, educated professionals were micromanaged, treated unfairly, and bullied (strong word, I know, but it is appropriate). I only had the job for 8 months and knew it was time to go. I was fortunate to find another job right way – a FANTASTIC job with wonderful people where we are all valued and respected.
The stress associated with the change has taken a toll on me and this website was the thing that I had to temporarily let go. But all is good again in Jill-World. Thanks to all of you that reached out to see if I was okay. [hug]

It is not a title-tease. JoggingJeans.com does not disappoint, my testosterone-infused viewers.

butt Camila Alves (with Matthew McConaughey).
Both are, oddly, running in jeans.

Thanks to Chuck for his photo from the Relay For Life in Arlington, WA.
Apparently, the oddball at this charity race is the guy dressed appropriately in a t-shirt, shorts, and running shoes. Notice all the people running in coats, hoodies, wings(!), and JEANS around him on this June day.

It is simple, one lap of the outdoor track or two laps of the indoor track, from a standing start, wearing nothing but you most stylish jeans and footwear of your choice (spikes, runners, flats, work boots, slippers everything goes). NO shirts (ladies are allowed to wear a sports bra, if they choose to), no cut offs jeans, no synthetics, no knock offs. Jeans must be 100% full length denim. And of course the objective is to win! As in fastest time takes the title!
And the laugh out loud statement: Cause running in jeans makes you look extra fast!!
The dates say 2007. They called it an “inaugural” event. Emails went unanswered. Joggingjeans.com readers are wondering if this awesome event is still around.
